Save a life and maybe they'll name a litigation group after you



Here's a little exercise using Google News Search, seeking the terms: "automated, external, defibrillator, saved, life." We learn that indeed the devices do -- save lives, that is. For example...

It just occurred to us to conduct the search after looking through the litigation groups meeting at the American Association for Justice's upcoming summer convention in San Francisco. And there it is, 10 a.m., Tuesday, July 28, "Automated External Defibrillator (AED) Litigation Group Meeting."

Wonder how many lives that meeting will save?
